I formatted the usb stick as FAT16 loaded the DOS OS and the Bios update.

At this stage we are left to guess.

1. What do you mean by formatting the usb stick? If you used dd
afterwards, any formatting was a waste of time?

2. What do you mean by ***loading*** the DOS OS?

In the two cases you should give the commands you used.


You are seeking help but you omit part of the output of the command. Is
this another guessing game? Please do not do that; you give evryihing
you get and we decide.

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1   *          32       63487       31728    e  W95 FAT16 (LBA)

In isolation, and without knowing exactly how you got here. this looks

rosenberg:/# mount /dev/sdb1 /media/usbstick
mount you must specify the filesystem type

There is a possible reason for this, but I 'd rather see your response
to what is above before advancing it.

rosenberg:/# mount -t e  /dev/sdb1 /media/usbstick
mount: unknown filesystem type 'e'

A rubbish command. "e" is not a filesystem. Forget about it.

rosenberg:/# mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /media/usbstick
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdb1,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so

Please see above.


Brian -

Sorry for all the confusion.

Disregard the above.

There is a subsequent email.

The above problem resuilted from errors in setting up the usb stick. That problem was solved.

Then ....

Subsequent email...


Corrected file system, installed bios update program, booted other laptop from usb stick, updated bios......


Problem [with SSDT] still persists!!!

Still crying.


Hope this clarifies the issue.
